    India certified Final Chokers

    Choke choke choke, thats all people know to use whenever someone loses a close game. Give credit to England that they performed well at the end and won crucial moments and to indin women who almost took it home and were brilliant through out the tournament. How much women cricket you guys watch to call it a choke? Such games always go down the wire in women cricket and Indian girls played their heart out in the tournament and even today they took the game till the end but England were just a little better than them. We should be proud of the women team.

    Go and write such nonsense about women on some Pakistani forum. Our women players have made us proud. We don't need this crap here.

    Many of you will remember Mahavir Shah who played a corrupt cop in countless movies. His image as the bad cop was so iconic that when I watched the movie Judwaa and he was a cop (once again), I just assumed he is going to be bad. But <<shock>> <<shock>> he was actually a good cop in that movie and ended up getting killed by the villains. Sadly, Shah passed away when he was 40 in Chicago as a result of a car crash.

    SL test series is about to begin, Overseas tours are coming . In few days we ll be discussing team combinations Every tours holds a key towards the future goal, n our goal is to earn our tarnished reputation overseas. The brand of cricket we have seen under kohli gives us high hopes and we also have a good bunch of players in the right age group. For that to happen this team has to fill its loopholes. 1. backup opener 2. Backup keeper 3. wkt taking spinner 4. backup middle order batsman 5. Seaming all rounder 6. Fresh blood in fast bowling But there are some solution that can be found on this tour in kuldeep n Pandya. The potential Wkt taking spinner and Potential seaming all rounder But its important we play them and give them opp to learn . 1. Pandya- In overseas condition we need a 5th bowler + cushion in batting. Jayant yadav cant be our answer overseas neither can be jadeja whose batting is only good against spinners. So we are left with Pandya n Shankar , shankar is on A-tour and opportunity to give him 4 day games has already been missed. Pandya is someone who can destroy spinners and looks good against fast bowling. A bowler who clocks above 140k , get seam movement, bounce, bowls a wkt taking line and is deceptively quick. So he sounds a good package and better then binny n jadeja as all rounder. We have given chances to yuvraj, raina, rohit who failed so why we have fear with pandya . He might fail with bat but will still contribute with ball. A 5th bowler like him will always fetch wkts unlike binny who cud have done the role of containing. We played binny on last tour of SL so lets try someone better this time Pandya. Pandya will only improve if he plays. Come overseas tour we ll have to give him a chance so why not now, the way he takes on spinners who knws he might get the better of herath. If pandya plays all 3 test higher chances he ll come out as better cricketer. Also i have seen him take blinders in slips in domestic Another good slip fielder wnt harm among many droppers Test cricket can improve Pandya batting - as he is going to get more and regular opp with bat then in ODi at 7, and he ll keeping getting his 10+ overs for bowling as well. 2. Kuldeep yadav- before i put his case, ill have to start with jadeja as for me kuldeep shud replace jadeja despite him being no.1 ranked Do we see jadeja as our wkt taking bowler overseas Do we see him going as an all rounder Shud we take 3 spinners overseas- ashwin , jadeja , Kuldeep I have one answer to all this question - NO . Then whats the harm in dropping him now. Yes its subcontinent- so we can give kuldeep a chance safely and didnt we win in SL last time without jadeja. Jadeja has become no .1 by bowling in India with Sg but now its all going to be kookabura and that ball diff has effected even our gr8 spinners in past. Ashwin did really well last time in SL and contributes more with bat then jadeja. For me if we have to win overseas we need a wkt taking spinner and that hs to be decided among kuldeep or ashwin, i dnt see jadeja as a wkt taking spinner overseas. Neither we shud carry 3 spinners overseas. Its high time we look at filling these gap holes on this tour, few opp have already been missed lets not waste anymore. IF we can trust these 2 in similar condition how wud we in tougher conditions Lets keep individual n individual rankings aside , its all about the team not individuals

    I think COA is making them cough money at women's cricket. For the first time they travelled first class lile men and got similar daily allowance. Bcci also has announced prize money. This performance has gone down well with people and the media. Mandana and harmanpreet have become popular celebrities. It's a long way to go but their lot will.improve. People will follow them more now.

    There were many of them...I'll start with this guy...his uniform is a give away...but this person ( Jagdish Raj ) was a common sight in many movies. Please feel free to post the ones you remember growing as a child & what role they mostly & repeatedly played. These days Bollywood movies are totally different according to present time. Just kindling some old memories.

    In the long term it would have been better for english women players and all women players if India had won. The masses of our population would have gotten interested and the game would have eventually been flushed with cash Similar way the men's 2007 T20 win changed the face of T20s and men's cricket forever, us winning here would have done the same thing for women;s cricket.

    Indian team showed in the semi finals why it was a threat even though not the favorites in that game. We beat Australia fair and square and now are in the finals. England at home are the favorites again, but Indian women team again remain a big threat to their opposition. Lets go India, win the cup.

    Among men, South Africa are obviously the kings of choking, but are we really number 2? Perhaps Pakistan but with them you never know whether it is a genuine choke or something more sinister.

    first provide proper transport to your women's team who returned to Pakistan. they are going to home from airport on bikes driven by relatives and friends for heavens sake. how did they travel on the flight for that matter? did PCB buy they tickets or were them made to stand up through out the flight in the general compartment? LMAO

    Washington Sunder opening the batting . He is a real prospect.Already a decent bowling prospect ,if he could improve his hitting prowess , would be real option for Indian team. Could be a genuine all rounder.Only 17 as well.

    Women cricket experiencing 1983 moment?

    They are underdogs, but have a great chance. That innings by Kaur is one of the greatest I've seen. And came in a situation where the team needed that kind of performance to have any chance to win.
